HISTORY AND PROGRESS OF THE CANADIAN CLUB
Without organized effort, without the turmoil of a national
V, conflict, without any special stirring of political life or feeling,
uj the steady growth of Canadian Clubs throughout Canada has,
^ at the end of 1907, assumed the form and force of a
3c national movement. These Clubs have no very definite plat-
g form, no decided purpose of a political kind, no uniform aim
1 excepting a desire for information. Yet in all the centres of
Canadian life these simple, unassuming, non-aggressive organiza-
tions have caused a stirring of the dust-heaps of political thought,
have aroused the keenest interest in varied questions of moral,
social, or constitutional evolution, and have created a thirst for
knowledge of public affairs which can only result— if the move-
ment continues — in making the Canadian business and profes-
sional man of the future unusually broad in his views and singu-
larly well-informed in his facts.
The initiation of such a movement is naturally a matter of
importance and of just pride to those who contributed to its incep-
tion. Until very lately there was no doubt existing as to who
deserved all the credit in this connection; in 1907 claims were
made to a share in the honours. To Hamilton, however, belongs
the unquestioned credit of organizing the first Canadian Club,
which is still in existence, and to Charles K. jMcCullough the
J' honour of founding that Club. From Hamilton came the idea
2 and ideal of a banding together of Canadians for the purpose of
^ meeting once a month, or oftener, in order to hear addresses from
'^ prominent men of all countries and of all opinions upon subjects
jj with which they might l)e specially familiar. From Hamilton
^ came the personal influences which resulted in Toronto's organiza-
tion, and from the latter city came thr plan of a one-hour mid-day
luncheon, hold once a week, which ensured I he success of the
struggling idea and carried it into accomplisliment and ])opular
practice. From this basis in Haiiiilton and Toronto the move-
ment spread in ton years' time to Montreal and Quebec, to Halifax
and St. .John, to Winnipeg and Brandon, to Regina and Edmonton,
to Victoria and Vancouver, to far-away Dawson itself.
So far as this movement was originally a national one in the
sense of being a faint striving after some form of indefinite
"nationalism" — as dislinet from Imperial or British unity
though n<»t neeessarily in antagonism to that princi])le — there had
been preceding efforts and even contemporary action. The
National Club in Toronto was formed in 1871 witli Dr. Ooldwin
Smith as its President, Mr. W. H. Howland as one f.f its founclers
and the spirit of national independeiiee as a sort of elastic environ-
ment — which is now oidv a memory. The St. Jean l>ai»tisle Socie-
2 THE CANADIAN ANl^IJAL REVIEW
ties long had a place in the evolution of sentiment in Quebec. The
Ligue Rationale Canadienne was a latter-day product of French
thought and the activities of Mr. Bourassa. The Canadian
N"ational League in Montreal was organized by Mr. W. D. Light-
hall in 1893 at the very time the Hamilton Canadian Club was
being formed and letters describing the objects of each organiza-
tion actually crossed in the mails. This League had the following
platform : " To advance and maintain our national unity and
integrity; to disseminate a spirit of patriotism; to promote an
interest in citizenship, its duties and rights ; to spread a knowledge
of Canadian history and resources and other like objects." It
never had the Luncheon or weekly meeting idea and is not now
alive in its original form.
The special claim made to paternity in the Canadian Club
movement came from Guelph. It was asserted in speeches and
newspaper correspondence in 1907, and was to the effect that a
Canadian Club was formed in Guelph in 1888 by Mr. Malcolm
MacCormack, b.a. ; that it lasted several years ; and that as the
Hamilton Club was not organized until 1893 the former was
really the parent organization. A banquet was held in Guelph
on i)ec. 6th, 1907, to celebrate " the 19th anniversary of the
original Canadian Club " and amongst the guests were Prof.
Macgillivray of Kingston and Mr. H. K. Cockin of Guelph, who
were toasted as Honorary members of the Club in its early his-
tory. As against this claim was the fact of the Club being, in
any case, out of existence when the Hamilton organization was
founded; that Messrs. C. R. McCullough and W. Sanford Evans
and other well-known pioneers in the Hamilton movement had
never heard of such a club; that missionary efforts were made
by the Council of Canadian Clubs in 1899 to organize a club in
Guelph, and that Mr. Galbraith of the Mercury in that City pro-
mised his aid to the movement ; that the Society, organized in
1889, was regarded in local circles as a sort of literary society;
that a Canadian Club was organized in Guelph on Eeb. 14th, 1907,
with Mr. G. C. Creelman, President of the Ontario Agricultural
College, as its President, and without any reference, in the Guelph
Herald report of the meeting, to the existence of a preceding local
Club. The claim may, therefore, be considered interesting but
The Canadian Club in Hamilton was initiated at a meeting in
the office of Mr. McCullough on Dec. 6th, 1892. Those present were
the convener and Messrs. James Ferres, John T. Hall, George D.
Fearman, W. Sanford Evans and Henry Carpenter. It was
decided to form a society, called the Canadian Club, for the cul-
tivation of Canadian patriotic sentiment and the study of Cana-
dian history, literature, art and resources. There were to be no
party politics in its composition or work and the delivery of
addresses by representative men was to be a central feature of its
History and Progress of Cajstadian Club Movement 3
policy. Provisional organization took place on Feb. 1, 1893, and
the officers were elected on Feb. 15th. They included Sanford
Evans as President, James Ferres, Thomas Morris, Jr., and
George Lynch-Staimton as Vice-Presidents, Stuart Livingston as
Literary Correspondent, J. H. Land as Treasurer and C. R.
McCullough as Secretary. Some of the pioneer members of the
Club were Adam Brown, F. H. Whitton, A. T. Freed, F. R.
Hutton, Lieut.-Col. J. S. Hendrie, A. H. Heming, Kirwan Mar-
tin, W. A. Sherwood, Dr. Douglas G. Storms, F. M. Pratt, Senator
Sanford, the Rev. J. H. Long, Dr. Thos. O'Hagan, J. L. Lewis
and R. E. Land. The Presidents since organization have been
as follows :
1893 W. Sanford Evans, m.a.
1894 Dr. Douglas G. Storms.
1895 Charles R. McCullough.
1896 Stuart Livingston, m.a.
1896 Rev. J. H. Long, ll.b., m.a.
1897 Kirwin Martin, m.a.
1898 Kirwin Martin, m.a.
1899 F. F. Macpherson, b.a.
1900 A. E. Manning.
1901 R. A. Robertson.
1902 J. S. Gordon, o.s.a.
1903 D. M. Cameron.
1904 D. M. Cameron.
1905 John T. Hall.
1906 J. H. Smith, p.s.i.
1907 W. M. McClemont
From Hamilton in this connection radiated an ever-increasing
influence. Early members of the Club, such as E. W. B. Morrison,
moved to Ottawa, and no doubt aided in the formation of the
Club there. As a matter of fact seven former members of the
Hamilton organization were included in the charter list of the
Ottawa society. So with Mr. James Ferres in Montreal, Mr. J. P.
Casey in St. Catharines, Mr. W. Brooks in Gait, and Mr. Sanford
Evans in Toronto, and afterwards in Winnipeg. The Hamilton
Club was incorporated on June 25th, 1894, with the following as
its announced platform, though the permanent room idea was aban-
doned after a brief trial : " The purpose of the Club is the encour-
agement of the stndy of the history, literature, art, music and
natural resources of Canada, the recognition of native worth and
talent, the fostering of a patriotic sentiment, and the maint(>n-
ance of club rooms or permanent headquarters in premises owned
or leased by the Club." Starting upon a small scale the Club
soon had 700 members, though those figures are now greatly
reduced. Renewed activity in 1907, however, added somewhat
to the Club inombership. Tts earlier speakers included uumy local
men of high standing, and later on, men of the rank of Sir Oliver
Mowat, Hall Caine and Sir Gilbert Parker, together with |irom-
inent French-C^anadians such as R. Lemieux, J. C}. IT. Bcrgf-ron
and J. Israel Tarte, addres.sed the organization. An exhibition
of Canadian pictures was held, varif)us e.ssays were read covering
a wide range of subjects, a steel flagstafT was presented to the
City and Mr. J. IT. Smith initiated a plan for the flying of flags
upon th<» .u'hool -houses of Wentworth County.
Iw ]8i*7 Mr. Sanford Evans came to live in Toronto and at
-mce (Pfl^P.^voured to organize a Canadian Club in that city. It
4 THE CANADIAN ANNUAL REVIEW
was not an altogether easy task. A national sentiment or ideal
which conld be at once Canadian and British was not as yet
understood, and there was a tendenc}^ to look askance at the new
" nationalism " as being a little dangerous. However, Mr. Evans
kept at it; some preliminary meetings were held in October and
November, including a banquet of about a hundred persons, at
which the speeches did not err on the side of Imperialism; and
on Nov. 16th an organization meeting resulted in a constitution
being adopted with the following principles : " It is the purpose
of the Club to foster patriotism by encouraging the study of the
institutions, history, arts, literature and resources of Canada and
by endeavouring to unite Canadians in such work for the welfare
and progress of the Dominion as may be desirable and expedient."
Mr. John A. Cooper was elected President, W. Sanford Evans and
Neil McCrimmon, Vice-Presidents, W. H. Moore, Literary Corre-
spondent, A. H. Beaton, Secretary, and C. A. B. Brown, Treas-
The membership included men of all kinds of political and
public thought and the roll for 1897-8 numbered 55; in 1907 it
was about 1,200. In 1898 A. E. Huestis became Secretary of
the Club and remained in that capacity with great success until
1907, when he was succeeded by J. W. H. Mackie. This Club
early adopted the principle of a weekly luncheon, addressed by
some representative Canadian or prominent visitor, for a limited
period of half-an-hour, and, in 1903-4, commenced to publish its
Proceedings. The speeches during these years dealt with every
conceivable variety of subject and personal opinion. Amongst
the Canadian speakers were such men as the Hon. G. W. Ross,
the Hon. A. B. Aylesworth, Colonel G. T. Denison, W. F. Mac-
lean, M.P., Sir Sandford Fleming, Sir T. G. Shaughnessy, the
Hon. J. Israel Tarte, the Hon. G. E. Foster, the Hon. Clifford
Sifton, J. S. Ewart, k.c, H. B. Ames, m.p., Dr. Goldwin Smith,
C. Marcil, m.p., C. M. Hays, Prof. S. B. Leacock, B. E. Walker,
J. S. Willison, H. Bourassa, im.p., the Hon. H. R. Emmerson, and
Ralph Smith, m.p. Earl Grey was the guest of a special banquet
on Nov. 29, 1906. From Great Britain came the Archbishop of
Canterbury, the Rt. Hon. John Morley, the Rt. Hon. James Bryce,
Dr. William Osier, H. Rider Haggard, m.p.. General Booth and
Rudyard Kipling. Some United States speakers were Booker T.
Washington, President Elliot of Harvard, James H. Eckels and
Andrew Carnegie. The Presidents of the Club during this period
were as follows :
1898-99 W. Sanford Evans.
1899-90 George Wilkie.
1900-01 W. E. Rundle.
1901-02 S. Casey Wood.

HiSTOKY AKD PkOGEESS OF CaNADIAJJ ClUB MoVEMEXT 5
An historical incident was the banquet tendered to Mr. Ayles-
worth on I^ov. 2, 1903, upon his return from the Alaskan Bound-,
ary Tribunal. The profound stirring of public opinion in that
matter found expression in a tenseness of feeling regarding the
dinner which resulted afterwards in the formation of the Empire
Club, as a protest against the supposed spirit of the demonstra-
tion, and in grave fear at the time as to the outcome of the affair.
In point of fact a huge British flag was prominent, the speech
was moderate in tone, and the demonstration harmless. Since
then, neither in Toronto nor elsewhere, has there been any talk
of the Canadian Club or clubs being likely to foster any senti-
ment but the best Canadianism, or to become anything but a med-
ium for informing the people upon a wide range of public
questions and problems of social development. The influence of
such organizations as those of Hamilton and Toronto could not
but grow as the years passed by. A Canadian Club was formed at
Gait by Messrs. A. K. Goldie and W. Brooks and another at Ottawa
in 1903, with Lieut.-Col. A. P. Sherwood, c.m.g., as President,
He was succeeded in 1904-5 by W. L. Mackenzie King, in 1905-6
by Dr. J. D. Courteney, a former member of the Canadian Club of
Hamilton, in 1906-7 by Plunket B. Taylor, and in 1907-8 by Ham-
nett P. Hill. An immense number of prominent men have
addressed this Club including many of those already mentioned
and others such as Sir "Wilfrid Laurier, the Earl of Dundonald,
the Earl of ]\rinto. Sir F. W. Borden, Mr. R. L. Borden, M.r.,
Sir Howard Vincent, Earl Grey, H.S.H. Prince Louis of Batten-
berg, Dr. W. H. Drummond, Sir Gilbert Parker, Mr. J. H.
Choate, Sir Richard Cartwright, Sir Frederick Pollock, the Hon.
Elihu Root and Mr. J. J. Hill. In 1904 Clubs were organized at
St. Catharines, Winnipeg and Dawson City; in 1905 at Montreal
and Orillia, Ont. ; in 1906 at Vancouver and Victoria, Edmon-
ton and Portage la Prairie and at London and Perth in Ontario ;
in 1907 at Moose Jaw, Brandon, Camrose, Saskatoon, Calgary,
and Hamiota, in the Western provinces, and at St. John and
Moncton in IvTew Brunswick; at Halifax in Nova Scotia, and at
Barrie, Guelph, Colliiigwood, Brantford, Port Arthur, Peter-
borough, Stratford, St, Thomas and Woodstock in Ontario.
Of these organizations the Montreal Clul) had A. R. Mc Master
as its first President and Pierre Benlac in 1900-7. ^Ir. W. T.
Stead was a prominent speaker during 1907; so were Rudyard
Kipling, the Bishop of Sligo, and Donald ^facmastcr, k.c. The
Winnipeg organization has been specially active. Its first Presi-
dent in 1904-5 was J. S. Ewart, K.r. He was snccoodod by
J. A. M. Aikins, k.c, in 1905-06, and by G. R. Crowe in 1906-07.
Mr. Sanford Evans was prominent in the formation and manage-
ment of this Club and ]\Ir. J. T>. ]\ritflK'll was and is the enthusi-
astic Secretary. vSpecial action has been taken by protests against
the too-frequent flying of Fnited States flags in pnblic places and

in the theatres. Amongst its important addresses were those of
Mr. J. J. Hill, Mr. F. C. Wade, k.c. (urging a statue upon the
grave of Wolfe), Hamar Greenwood, m.p., and J. G. Colmer,
C.M.G., A. J. Dawson, the English journalist, Sir Gilbert Parker,
Earl Grey, Sir W. Mulock, Sir John Murray and Mr. Kipling.
The Canadian Club at St. John was formed on Feb. 6, 1907,
and its most notable speakers were the Governor-General, Hon.
L. J. Tweedie, Lieut.-Governor, President K. A. Falconer of
Toronto University, Dr. G. K. PaAin and Professor S. B. Leacock.
The Halifax Club was formed the day after the one at St. John
with Lord Grey, Mr. Justice Russell, J. S. Willison, Rev. J. A.
Macdonald, Professor Leacock, Rev. Dr. Magill, President Fal-
coner and Hon. G. P. Graham amongst its chief speakers of the
year. The Club at Vancouver, B.C., was organized on Aug. 22,
1906, with F. C. Wade, k.c, as President, G. H. Cowan, k.c, as
Literary Correspondent, and J. N. Ellis as Secretary. Lord Grey's
address on Sept. 25, 1906, was the most notable event in its his-
tory. Hon. O. S. Strauss, U. S. Secretary of Commerce and
Labour, and Mr. Kipling were other speakers. The Club in
Victoria had as its first President, 1906-1907, Mr. A. W. Mc-
Curdy, with Frank I. Clarke as Secretary. This organization
passed a very strong Resolution on Oct. 23rd urging the Provin-
cial Government to see that the Union Jack was kept floating oyer
all school-houses and, under the initiative of its Secretary, invita-
tions were sent to Sir J. A. Swettenham, the retiring Governor of
Jamaica, to address Canadian Clubs at Calgary, Winnipeg,
Ottawa, Montreal, St. John and Halifax. In Dawson, Yukon
Territory, a Club was organized in March, 1904, largely through
the efforts of Mr. E. S. Busby, Inspector of Customs, who was its
President for the first two years ; Mr. Charles Macdonald in 1906 ;
and Dr. A. J. Gillis in 1907. Some of the Canadian Club Presi-
dents and Secretaries elected in 1907 were as follows. :

The progress of the movement in its wide-spread but detached
way naturally evolved the idea of combination. Messrs. C. R.
McCulloiigh and Sanford Evans were the first to make an effort
along this line, but they were met by two or three serious difficul-
ties. What someone has called the genius of the Canadian Clubs
seemed to lie largely in the direction of perfect independence of
one another and in complete freedom from the trammels of organ-
ized lines of thought or action — outside of the one general prin-
ciple of Canadianism. Another obstacle, lying below the surface,
was the question of including the organizations in the United
States. The formation of these latter concerns had been proceed-
ing for some time and in 1904 they were nearly equal in number
to those of Canada. 'New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Buffalo,
Cleveland, Pittsburg, Rochester, Cincinnati and St. Louis had
established Canadian Clubs or Societies and many of their mem-
bers were, very properly, citizens of the Republic with a national
ideal of a naturally, different character from that of the member-
ship in Canada. It was a grave problem, to some Canadians, as
to how far this influence would be beneficial in any combination
such as was proposed.
The first and preliminary action was taken in IS!)!), when a
League of Canadian ('liibs was formed with ITamilton, Toronto
and Gait as the membershif) and a Provincial Council consisting
of W. Sanford Evans, Toronto, as President, A. R. Goldio, Gait,
as Vice-President, and C!. R. McC'ullongh, of TTntnilfon, as Sec-
retary-Treasurer. Other (ylubs caiiK! gradually inl<» llic League
and especially a number of the United States organizations. At
a Conference held in Niagara Falls during the summer of 190G,
representatives were present from Hamilton, IMnnlrral, London,
Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver, as well as from Boston, i>uffalo,
Cincinatti and some other United States points. ^Mr. C. R. Mc-
Cullough was elected Chairman of the General Council of Cana-
dian Clubs and Societies, as it was now called, with John Cousins,
8 THE CAlSTADIAJiq^ ANNUAL REVIEW
of Cincinatti, as Secretary, H. C. Monk, of Montreal, as Vice-
Chairman for Canada, and A. T. Minard, of Boston, as Vice-
Chairman for the United States. Dr. J. D. Wilson, of London,
was Secretary for Canada, and Gordon F. Matthews, of Buffalo,
Secretary for the United States. For some unexplained reason
the Toronto Club took slight interest in the gathering ' and only
two or three representatives were present out of its membership
of over a thousand.
It may be added here that the most active organizations in the
United States are those of New York, Boston, Philadelphia and
Pittsburg. Under Dr. Neil McPhatter and the active efforts of
Mr. W. T. Robson, now of Montreal, the Club in New York did
good service in promoting international friendship — especially by
its annual banquets. Amongst them were Sir Charles Tupper,
Senator J. V. Ellis, the Hon. G. E. Foster, Sir F. Borden,
C. G. D. Roberts, the Hon. Clifford Sifton, Charles Marcil
and the Hon. R. Lemieux. Its Presidents included Dr.
R. H. Upham, 1900 and 1901; H. W. Patterson, 1902 and
1903 ; J. F. Masters, 1904 and 1905 ; C. H. Mclntyre, 1906 and
1907. The Canadian Society of Philadelphia was organized in
1901 with Mr. Thomas Martindale as President during that and
the four succeeding years. Mr. W. A. Higginbotham was elected
in 1906 and 1907. Mr. W. T. Rolph was Secretary of the Club
in 1907 and had been so for six years. In Pittsburg the Presi-
dent of the Canadian Society for 1907 was Dr. J. Holton Robin-
son and the Secretary W. M. Thompson. A Canadian Club was
formed at Houston, Texas, on Feb. 21, 1906, with W. W. Ander-
son as President and J. S. C. Adamson as Secretary. An interest-
ing organization was the Canadian Club of Harvard University
with a large membership composed of British-born students from
any part of the Empire and with Mr. Varley B. Fullerton, b.a.,
as President in 1907. In the far-away capital of Mexico a Cana-
dian Commercial Club was formed in 1904 with J. H. McLeod
as President. He was succeeded by C. T. Ambridge in 1906 and
by A. R. Dobson in 1907 — with A. D. W. Leach as Secretary. In
all the American organizations, the primary object was to keep
alive memories of the Canadian home country and to improve its
relations with the United States through an extension of knowledge
there as to Canadian conditions. In London, England, it may be
added, a Canadian Society was formed some years ago with 400
members and a Committee under the chairmanship of Mr. Barlow
Cumberland, who was then living in London. It has since done
excellent service in keeping Canada before the British public.
The first of all such organizations in London, or elsewhere indeed,
was the Canada Club, now nearly a century old. The Hon. Secre-
tary of its Managing Committee since 1901 has been Mr. J. G.
Colmer, c.m.g., and the other members of that body in 1907 were
Messrs. Ion Hamilton Benn, Donald Macmaster, k.c, Frederick
HiSTOKY AND PeOGRESS OF CANADIAN ClUB MOVEMENT 9
W. Taylor and Henry T. Walcott. Its membership is 160, of
whom some 140 live in the United Kingdom, and its object is to
provide social intercourse amongst Canadians living or visiting in
One more development of the movement must be mentioned.
In the earlier organization gatherings (except in Hamilton) and
practically at all the succeeding meetings of these Clubs through-
out Canada, women were excluded both from attendance and mem-
bership. In the autumn of 1907 action was taken to remedy this
omission. Almost simultaneously, and without concerted action,
Montreal and Winnipeg organized Women's Canadian Clubs with,
in each case, a large and representative membership. The in-
augural luncheon of the Montreal Club was held on Dec. 12th with
Lady Drummond in the chair ; with an inspiring address from
Lord Grey, who urged support to the proposed Champlain ter-
centenary celebration and read a cablegram from the King prom-
ising a donation of 100 guineas toward that object; and with a
very numerous attendance. The officers previously elected included
Lady Drummond as President, Madame Dandurand as Vice-
President, Mrs. Walton as Hon. Treasurer, and Mrs. R. Wilson
Reford as Hon. Secretary, In Winnipeg the Club was organized
largely through the efforts of Mrs. H. J, Parker, and on Dec, 6th
Mrs. Sanford Evans was elected President and Mrs. W. F. Osborne
Secretary. The inaugural luncheon was held on Dec. 14th with
an attendance of over 200 and addresses by the Hon, T. Mayne
Daly, of Winnipeg, and John Kendrick Bangs, of 'New York.
Incidents of 1907 in connection with these Clubs, and apart
from the organization of new ones already dealt with, were many
and interesting, but only a few can be mentioned here. The
Ottawa and Toronto organizations refused to hear W. T. Stead,
when he visited Canada, owing to his attitude during the South
African war; the Vancouver Club undertook (June 11) to collect
funds for the erection of a local Memorial to Captain Cook; the
Calgary Club arranged for the public flying of a flag in that city
on specified days in the year. During Lord Grey's address to
the Chib at St. John he expressed warm approval of the position
and work of these organizations: " The tendency of the addresses
delivered to Canadian Clubs, in which no references to party
interests are allowed, will be to lift the people out of the valley in
which they dwell on to the mountain to|)s whence their gaze will
extend over a wider horizon than that which is covered by the
shadow of their parish pump. It is because the tendency of the
Canadian Clubs is to enrich our life by widening your horizons,
and by keeping before you high ideals, the well-being of the State
and the interests, not of a party, but of an Empire in which
Canada may one day be the controlling influence, that they com-
mend themselves so entirely to my approval ; and I further believe
that in any city where a good Canadian Club exists the reign of
10 THE CAKADIAN ANNUAL KEVIEW
boodle and graft for more than a very short time will be an im-
possibility." The following list of addresses delivered before the
Canadian Clubs in 1907, gives a fair idea of the scope and char-
acter and influence of these organizations and shows how powerful
the continued growth of this movement may be in moulding the
public opinions and life of Canada :
